I've told you I recently sewed some more pillows for the Family Room. Well I think I can say the pillow situation is finally taken care of.
What I haven't mentioned (I think) is that we also replaced our TV stand. The old TV stand was a hand-me-down and I didn't love it. It was way too deep for the space.
This is an old picture of the space without any "finished" pillows and the old TV cabinet:
And here is the living room now, with finished pillows and the new TV dresser:
A better shot of all the pillows:
The bird pillow is a Lee Jofa fabric and was made for me by this Etsy seller. The pillow behind it was some fabric I picked up at a local shop; I made the pillow. The black and white pillows on the sofa is Schumacher Betwixt; I made the pillow. And the blue pillow is from West Elm from Allegra Hick's current collection... I love it!
It's nice to finally have some pillows with personality... before our pillows were purely functional and half of them didn't have covers.. ha!
The dresser I got at an auction for $60. It's huge and has tons of storage. Right now almost all of the drawers are empty.. I have a feeling they will come in hand whenever we have kids. I also like that it sort of makes the TV look smaller because of the huge size of the dresser... a large TV is my husband's one request in interior design, so how can I deny him of that?
I have gotten a lot of questions about my chaise lounge and it's location. A lot of people have said I should angle it, but that won't work for the space. I decided to go ahead and show you a video of our downstairs floor plan to help understand the furniture placement (and also in case you are curious!)
I would say this is the room we spend the most time in, aside from our bedroom, so it's nice that it's coming along. I still have the gallery wall to do above the sofa + chaise though.... and that will be a beast!
